More over grape jelly meatballs, there is a new meatball in town. Who doesn’t like grape jelly meatballs? Everyone in my family certainly does. My family also likes the half dozen ‘other’ versions I have made too. You know the recipes, you’ve probably have made them also.

Meatballs

My family loves the packaged-style meatballs. Yes, I know, they’re funny that way. So when my son asked me to make Sweet n’ Sour meatballs this year for Christmas I thought, this should be easy. I don’t even have to make meatballs, I can just buy a bag. Now, don’t get me wrong, if they want to eat packaged, pre-made meatballs, that’s fine with me! Saves me time in the kitchen and during the busy holidays, that’s a plus in my book.
